AEDs are life-saving devices that can be used to shock a person’s heart back into rhythm in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. If someone is experiencing sudden cardiac arrest, every minute without defibrillation counts, so it’s important to have a working AED nearby and to know how to use it. However, it is equally important to have your AED in working condition, so it’s important to have the batteries replaced on a regular basis.
When You Should Replace AED Batteries
AEDs are powered by batteries, and it’s important to replace the batteries regularly to ensure that the device is always ready to use in an emergency. The lifespan of an AED battery varies depending on the type of battery and the manufacturer, but most batteries need to be replaced every 2-5 years. Even if you don’t use your AED very often, the batteries will still degrade over time and lose their ability to hold a charge. This means that your AED may not be able to function properly if you need to use it in an emergency.
AED batteries can be affected by extreme temperatures. If you store your AED in a place where it’s exposed to extreme temperatures, such as a hot car or a cold garage, this can shorten the lifespan of the batteries. They can be affected by humidity. If you store your AED in a humid environment, this can also shorten the lifespan of the batteries.
While replacing AED batteries every two to five years is a good rule of thumb, there are ways to ensure that you always know your batteries are in good condition. We offer AED management programs that can monitor multiple devices from different manufacturers that will inform you of their current status. This is a great option for facilities with multiple AEDs that need to be maintained and meet compliance standards.
